Consumer Reports is the only place to find unbiased, independent dishwasher reviews. Looking for special dishwasher features such as a third rack or hidden controls? Should you get a standard dishwasher or a drawer dishwasher? What about a stainless steel interior?
Our experts at the Consumer Reports National Testing and Research Center have evaluated nearly 200 current dishwasher models at our on-site dishwasher testing labs. Our reviews will provide you with recommended dishwasher Ratings, where you will find the exact numerical score our experts have assigned to each of the five tested review criteria that make up our dishwasher reviews: washing, energy use, noise, ease of use, and dishwasher cycle time.
Our reviews also provide dishwasher reliability Ratings—based on input from thousands of actual dishwasher users—for such major brands as Bosch, Whirlpool, GE, Miele, Kenmore, Samsung, KitchenAid, and many others. Our dishwasher review pages also include a dishwasher selector, where you can input brand, category, and price to narrow down the right dishwasher model for your needs.
After reading the dishwasher reviews, you can compare models, review our list of dishwasher features and specifications, read user reviews, and submit your own review. If you prefer visual information, you can watch our dishwasher video buying guide.
